On the last Sunday in May, a special procession known as 'La Madonna nella Barca' takes place in the name of the Madonna dei Miracoli. This is a devotional procession that dates from the end of the 1800s. It was created on the initiative of migrants from Tramutolo, who wanted to fulfil the vow they had made during the dangerous crossing of the Atlantic on their return to their homeland from America.

The statue of the Madonna is carried in a procession on a boat of roses.

The memory of Archbishop Pecci, who played an extremely important role in the glorification of the Vergine dei Miracoli and her solemn coronation in 1923, is associated with the Madonna dei Miracoli. There is also a common thread that links Monsignor Pecci and Vincenzo Ferroni. When Pecci was Archbishop of Acerenza and Matera, he asked Maestro Ferroni to compose music for the prayer in honour of the Madonna dei Miracoli, the Madonna della Bruna di Matera, di Oppido Lucano. There is also a spiritual connection between Tramutola and Matera, where his remains lie in the Cathedral.
